On Saturday, August 27, three FKU first-kyu brown belts will be testing for their shodan-ho (provisional blackbelt) alongside Sensei Judy, who will be testing for her second dan (second degree blackbelt).
The test will take place upstairs at FKU, with some folks from our parent dojo in Hawaii dialing in via Zoom. For those interested in seeing the test, we will have a large screen set up downstairs. Stop by to see any part of the test and support your fellow students.
